E file 2012 tax return COBRA premium assistance credit. E file 2012 tax return   The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA) provides certain former employees, retirees, spouses, former spouses, and dependent children the right to temporary continuation of health coverage at group rates. E file 2012 tax return COBRA generally covers multiemployer health plans and health plans maintained by private-sector employers (other than churches) with 20 or more full and part-time employees. E file 2012 tax return Parallel requirements apply to these plans under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). E file 2012 tax return Under the Public Health Service Act, COBRA requirements apply also to health plans covering state or local government employees. E file 2012 tax return Similar requirements apply under the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program and under some state laws. E file 2012 tax return For the premium assistance (or subsidy) discussed below, these requirements are all referred to as COBRA requirements. E file 2012 tax return   Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), employers are allowed a credit against “payroll taxes” (referred to in this publication as “employment taxes”) for providing COBRA premium assistance to assistance eligible individuals. E file 2012 tax return For periods of COBRA continuation coverage beginning after February 16, 2009, a group health plan must treat an assistance eligible individual as having paid the required COBRA continuation coverage premium if the individual elects COBRA coverage and pays 35% of the amount of the premium. E file 2012 tax return   An assistance eligible individual is a qualified beneficiary of an employer's group health plan who is eligible for COBRA continuation coverage during the period beginning September 1, 2008, and ending May 31, 2010, due to the involuntarily termination from employment of a covered employee during the period and elects continuation COBRA coverage. E file 2012 tax return The assistance for the coverage can last up to 15 months. E file 2012 tax return   Employees terminated during the period beginning September 1, 2008, and ending May 31, 2010, who received a severance package that delayed the start of the COBRA continuation coverage, may still be eligible for premium assistance for COBRA continuation coverage. E file 2012 tax return For more information, see Notice 2009-27, 2009-16 I. E file 2012 tax return R. E file 2012 tax return B. E file 2012 tax return 838, available at www. E file 2012 tax return irs. E file 2012 tax return gov/irb/2009-16_irb/ar09. E file 2012 tax return html. E file 2012 tax return   Administrators of the group health plans (or other entities) that provide or administer COBRA continuation coverage must provide notice to assistance eligible individuals of the COBRA premium assistance. E file 2012 tax return   The 65% of the premium not paid by the assistance eligible individual is reimbursed to the employer maintaining the group health plan. E file 2012 tax return The reimbursement is made through a credit against the employer's employment tax liabilities. E file 2012 tax return For information on how to claim the credit, see the Instructions for Form 943. E file 2012 tax return The credit is treated as a deposit made on the first day of the return period. E file 2012 tax return In the case of a multiemployer plan, the credit is claimed by the plan, rather than the employer. E file 2012 tax return In the case of an insured plan subject to state law continuation coverage requirements, the credit is claimed by the insurance company, rather than the employer. E file 2012 tax return   Anyone claiming the credit for COBRA premium assistance payments must maintain the following information to support their claim, including the following. E file 2012 tax return Information on the receipt of the assistance eligible individuals' 35% share of the premium including dates and amounts. E file 2012 tax return In the case of an insurance plan, a copy of invoice or other supporting statement from the insurance carrier and proof of timely payment of the full premium to the insurance carrier required under COBRA. E file 2012 tax return In the case of a self-insured plan, proof of the premium amount and proof of the coverage provided to the assistance eligible individuals. E file 2012 tax return Attestation of involuntary termination, including the date of the involuntary termination for each covered employee whose involuntary termination is the basis for eligibility for the subsidy.
